Kissing ?
Mar 5, 2000

About 5 months ago, I went to the massage place at the hotel in bangkok and the woman kissed me, close to french about twice. I am worried, but I am also relieved that the saliva doesn't contain much HIV. Also, I don't even know whether she has AIDS or not. I am reluctant in getting the test. Also is itching any symptom of AIDS at all? Thank you

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Itching is terribly non-specific and can be anything or nothing. Kissing is an unlikely way to get HIV, but if you're going to put energy into worrying, then get tested and be more careful.
